This article is solely based on the eye witness reports of people who have claimed to see the monster. They have the names the story and what the news media captured from interviewing the main and promising stories. Like the story of Alex Campbell who reported that something of a large mass came underneath his boat and shook his boat, his dog started to bark loudly as he heard an even noisier “Swoosh” and then his boat suddenly stopped shaking and everything went back to normal, although he saw the underwater currents moving rapidly in the other way. He didn’t ever believe in the loch ness monster until that day when he was going on an exploration with his dog. He wishes someone would’ve been there for the creepy scenario. This supports my belief because if he is telling the truth there really aren’t that many things in a closed lake that can make an entire boat shake. It’s a spooky story but I believe that it could’ve been real. For the opposing side of this, they wouldn’t take this as an actual sighting other than just another hoax since the majority of them are. I would believe this website because it has all of the sources and all of the alleged stories throughout the years so it seems reliable. I would only say for people that don’t believe since they weren’t there and have no proof this story is simply but a lie.*** Harmsworth, Tony. “Eye Witness Reports.” Loch Ness Monster Eye Witness Accounts.

Joanne Kennel, the author of this article doesn't really exist but the author doesn’t take a position on this as much. She said that she wanted it to be real so if there was ever a chance for it to be then she would love that. This is a really good article for the reason if youre skeptical because it points out the logical facts at which the monster is almost physically impossible. It mentions all the faked sightings and how because since there are so many fake sightings then there is no reason to believe anyone else if there is no evidence. She also states that “Loch Ness is Too Cold Nessie has most often been described as a reptile, however earlier reports describe her as seal-like. Nevertheless, Loch Ness is not a suitable habitat for a reptile — the water is just too cold. Now if Nessie were warm-blooded, like a seal, she would be a creature completely different from anything in the fossil record. Not impossible, but highly unlikely.” Which is pretty logical because weather has a big impact on anything so why wouldn’t it apply to this illogical monster. I think that the weather is a very good reason to not believe because not many people even bring that up so it’s a new view to disbelieve. This is a good article to decide your position on this because it isn’t biased but still logical.*** Kenell, Joanne. “Why the Loch Ness Monster Probably Doesn't Exist.” The Science Explorer, 24 Aug. 2004, thescienceexplorer.com/nature/why-loch-ness-monster-probably-doesn-t-exist.
This school source hasn’t really established an opinion on whether or not to believe in the creature, but it does call out some of the missed details in some of the key sightings or evidence news reports and people have claimed. In this article it mentions the famous surgeons photo that had been proven to be a toy, well there was another thing that was crucial to the searchers and skeptics to this investigation. “In December 1933 the Daily Mail commissioned Marmaduke Wetherell, a big-game hunter, to locate the sea serpent. Along the lake’s shores, he found large footprints that he believed belonged to “a very powerful soft-footed animal about 20 feet [6 metres] long.” However, upon closer inspection, zoologists at the Natural History Museum determined that the tracks were identical and made with an umbrella stand or ashtray that had a hippopotamus leg as a base; Wetherell’s role in the hoax was unclear.” This was so convincing to some people, but once again it was just a cruel and harmful joke. It wasn’t taken seriously after they inestigated what it could be. Many people that truly believed in the creature said it’s a water based and only water animal so whoever did this wasn’t the loch ness monster. This article helps the skeptics in this case to prove that most “evidence” is later proven a joke, or someone who wants attention. I used this to prove that yes there are hoaxs but you have to look past that in order to not be pessimistic in this topic*** Schake, conrad. “Log In.” Britannica School, 19 Oct. 2001, school.eb.com/levels/high/article/Loch-Ness-monster/630081.
Steve, is a completely sane person and is infatuated with this illogical monster. He quit his job, started a whole new life on the Lake back in 1991 and ever since hes never left the lake. He truly believes in this creature. His daily routine consists of waking up and looking for the loch ness monster for a little bit, then he will continue to live like anyone else in his small library camper parked in the back of a motel on the lake where his friend let him park. Now steve, he hasn’t fully seen the monster he said that a few times hes seen something beneath the surface of the water and he believes that that is what it is. I believe his opinion Is biased because he wants it to be real but in the same time steve he is very logical and I think that’s why it was important to hear what he has to say. “I have set myself two main aims, firstly to spot Nessie for myself, and secondly to bring any current sightings to the publics attention.” This is important because it does show that he is actively searching for it. This supports what I believe so that I know I am not the only one whom believes in this and that one day if youre optimistic enough it could happen. On the contrary people who do not believe will not take this man as a source of reliable information since there is no evidence technically because he hasn’t recorded a full sighting.*** Feltham, Steve. “About Steve Feltham.” About Me, 24 Mar. 2008, nessiehunter.co.uk/about.htm.
This picture is just to grasp a sense of all the hoax’s over the years and how just because these photos look real and that it got so famous and popular and tell-tale sign that the monster is real, that just because that has happened is not true. In fact, a surgeon in 1934 decided to play a trick and fake a head and attached it to a toy submarine. The son many years after the surgeon’s dad had died came out and said that this picture was a hoax, although it was clear from the start that it definitely was. The proportions of the neck and the waves are really off. The waves look to be pea sized. I chose this to prove that yes some of these if not a majority of them are fake, but on the contrary a lot of them could be real, but it is all he said he said, and no one can prove somethings fake if its not proven to be true. *** Most Influential Evidence. 2 July 2001, dujye7n3e5wjl.cloudfront.net/photographs/1080-tall/time-100-influential-photos-loch-ness-monster-21.jpg.
NOVA, a research team of the Loch Ness Lake. this team decided to search the lake with a sonar sound wave program, considering sound waves travel and last for more time in a liquid rather than the air. This so called myth is rarely considered a myth if you live in Scotland or near the lake. When the team decided to go on their expedition they encountered a thing, a moving object of which had a sound wave of about 18 feet long and close to 400 pounds, probably. the reason i trust this video is that the experts within it are trained professionals and they had very large equipment and proof that there has to be something. it supports my position by saying that there is a possibility of having a lurking creature. "several hours of routinely searching, the team is suddenly hopeful. 'weve got a large target (a man on the searching ship says)' they have found a large moving object 20 feet below the surface and it is moving, so they cannot get a better look with the second sonar device unfortunately, they couldn't find that moving thing again"- the narrator of the documentary comments. while there could be many things in this lake, and the first big sound wave they spotted they automatically just assumed it could be the monster and the fact that they weren't able to find the thing moving agin was a little bit odd, even though it did take them hours in the first place to find the first spectacular sound wave, i could see how people that do not believe in the loch ness monster would see that this does nothing except inform that there are animals in the lakes top 25 feet of surface water.*** “Sound Waves Underwater: The Loch Ness Monster.” PBS LearningMedia, www.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/phy03.sci.phys.mfw.lochness/sound-waves-underwater-the-loch-ness-monster/#.WuKbVExFxYc.
